Pay a visit to the three giant pandas. Check out an African elephant and an Asian elephant and learn about their differences. Try to spot a rare monkey on the Monkey Trails and keep your eyes peeled for the world's smallest one - the pygmy marmoset.

  • Are there any strollers available at the San Diego Zoo?

    Yes, absolutely. You can rent strollers at the San Diego Zoo on a first-come, first served basis. A single stroller for the day costs $14 and a double stroller with side-by-side seating costs $18 for the day. The strollers are one size but can fit a variety of children. They have cup holders and a storage pouch for extra convenience. Be sure to arrive early to rent one since you cannot reserve one in advance. Get ready to stroll the zoo at your leisure. 
  • Where can I eat at the San Diego Zoo?

    When hunger strikes, there are plenty of eateries scattered throughout the San Diego Zoo. Poppy's Patio, Treetops Café, and Lagoon Terrace are perfect for grabbing a hot dog, sandwich, pizza, and ice cream. Hua Mei Café offers burgers and Asian dishes. Pull up a chair at Front Street Café for Mexican and American eats or at Sydney's Grill for Aussie sandwiches and burgers. For a jungle-like experience, head to Albert's a restaurant in a treehouse.
